South Mississippi Electric Power Association (SMEPA) confronted multiple challenges in its purchase of LSP Energy’s Batesville plant out of bankruptcy, and Sutherland attorneys provided advice every step of the way. The deal, which closed in December 2012, survived a court-ordered auction, mechanical problems at the plant and a protest from a local government agency. Sutherland Partners Thomas H. Warren and Mark D. Sherrill and Associate W. Jason Allman led the team that advised on the transaction, which involved all assets of the natural gas-fueled plant.
